Many mood turns.....
I was lucky enough to be able to hear this little EP before its release on Pavillon36, and still does grace my player frequently.
The opener track "Turn" starts with intent, fractured percussion which suddenly morphs with momentum halfway in. Only to then strip down to reveal its ambient snowman socks.
"Forward" feels like it is going to merely explode into.... something. It takes us nicely into "Checksum" whose familiar yet foreign melody strangely reminds me of Aphex Twin's "Selected Ambient Works II" only to suddenly pick up the tempo when least expected!
"A Cool Breeze" drifts in and out like its name implies, but then the pounding kicks in "Pre To Cursor" and "Precursor Fiend" brings us back down slightly from that fleeting moment again. And lastly "Then", a brooding piece that wouldn't sound out of place over dreams of being in frozen caverns whilst trying to run, but not QUITE having the ability to move.
Tiruset's "Turns" EP is certainly deserving of its' title. There are many shards of ideas in its 12 minutes, and as a result a very worthwhile listen. Enjoy.
